Moore's Gardens

In the western edge of Lebanon, Denise and Lynotte Moore have created a living environment that is equal parts secluded getaway and a welcoming social setting.

In the spring of 2012 the Moore’s home became the backdrop for their daughter, Ashlie’s wedding ceremony. In the spring of 2012 the Moore’s home became the backdrop for their daughter, Ashlie’s wedding ceremony. “Nothing will make you tackle that to-do list at home like knowing dozens of people will be walking through on the most important day of your daughter’s life,” Denise said with a hearty laugh. Don’t let her fool you though; their home is a perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics. While the inside is beautiful, it’s their impeccably landscaped yard and garden that made it the only location suited for their daughter’s nuptials.

Moore's House & GardenIf you haven’t met Denise and Lynotte, odds are someone you know has. Denise lends her time to many charitiesMoore's Gardens including Sherry’s Run and anything involving animals. Denise’s interest in animals started after Lucy, a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix, became part of their family a few years ago. “Animals can’t speak for themselves, and when I would hear about the mistreatment of one of God’s precious creatures, I, along with a few wonderful people, decided to do something about it. That’s when we formed Artists 4 Animals,” Denise explained while holding a very content Lucy. In 2011, with the help of Grammy Award winning Country Music Artist, Tracy Lawrence, Denise hosted and coordinated the inaugural ‘Artists for Animals’ benefit concert. They raised $38,000 for New Leash on Life. New Leash on Life is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the welfare of companion animals in the area. At NLOL, stray or homeless animals are nurtured back to health, spayed or neutered and adopted to a loving home.

Denise’s lively energy is contagious, and I can personally attest to the fact that she can get a laugh out of you with a simple phone call even on the most melancholy day.

The man behind this woman is one of the most well respected businessmen in Wilson County. Lynotte went into the carpet business with his father in 1973. Eventually he bought his dad out and purchased the old Young Chrysler Plymouth dealership building. Lynotte owned the business for 28 1/2 years along with his carpet business. Along with his business partner, Chuck Lowe, he built four commercial buildings on Eastgate Boulevard.
